2014 was a year of spectacularly accurate prophecies from TB Joshua. Despite the terrible tragedy that claimed the lives of 116 people and injured many more. It was a year when TB Joshua’s credibility as a prophet was greatly confirmed. Contrary to critic opinion, Joshua did not fail to foresee the disaster that befell his church building. He spoke prophetically in parable during his first address on his return from Colombia saying; ““…If you learnt that they bomb here now one of you would be the first to call CNN that they have bombed the synagogue …I’ve been telling you something far, but now I’m telling you something as close as my mouth”. . As close as his mouth meant his very own life. Those who insinuate that Joshua did not foresee the disaster are badly misinformed. Here is the video below:
The band of critics who question why the victims were not healed or raised from the dead if Joshua were a true prophet are tempters of God. Was not Jesus sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and yet a tower fell on many people right there in Israel killing many; Did Jesus raise any of them up from dead? Was Job not a God fearing man? Why were his sons and daughters who were victims of a disaster not raised from the dead? Being faithful to God does not eliminate adversity. They do not know the scriptures who measure faithfulness to God by circumstances. The proof of a man’s right standing with God is not that things go smoothly with him, but that he acts with God, knows God’s opinion of himself and of others. Through acting with God, there comes peace of heart knowing that God is with him, for him and deserves his best. It is this peace that has kept TB Joshua going in spite of negative sense evidences through which many critics predicted that his end had come.
Some Critics say the SCOAN attendance plummeted even to the extent of having an impact on national tourism revenues. Funny how for the very first time, they admit that the influx of pilgrims to the SCOAN is an immense contribution to Nigerian tourism revenue. Had we not witnessed a disaster of this sort, we might never have heard them admit to this. And the reason for the initial decrease is clear. Before the disaster just about anyone could come to the SCOAN, but after the disaster, it would take a great deal of faith and courage to visit. The disaster caused a screening away of the faithless and sightseers from those who are genuinely seeking God, Nothing to be alarmed about.
For those who claim he was caught bribing journalists. Follow this link for an unbiased and well researched view on the subject.
Also those who count the continuous threats of arrest at TB Joshua by the coroner for not turning up to court should consider that the initial purpose of the inquest was to determine the cause and manner of the collapse. How does summoning TB Joshua to court fall in line with this purpose? Was he an eyewitness to the incident or what?
The proof of a man’s right standing with God is not that things go smoothly with him, but that he acts with God, knows God’s opinion of himself and of others.
It is our prayer that the events of 2014 will help open the eyes of those held captive by ignorance so that in 2015, they may find their freedom from blindness of heart and deception.
For the slew of critics who after turning a blind eye to the overwhelming number of fulfilled prophecies for 2014, supposedly highlight 3 alleged prophetic failures: flight MH370, the release of the chibok girls and the writing off of Ebola.
Such people should realize that in the case of flight MH370, TB Joshua gave direct clues in real time to the location of the plane wreckage which ought to be looked into but was blatantly ignored.
In the case of the chibok girls, he spoke saying the girls would be released immediately, and why? Because they have not all been released shall we say he has spoken wrongly? When Jesus by revelation said thus to John over 2000 years ago “behold I come quickly”, and now it’s over 2000 years since he said this, does that prove him a liar?
In the writing off of Ebola, we know how the miraculous deliverance of Nigeria from the deadly plague happened after his prayers, and for the deliverance of other nations we are yet to hear reports. But it would be too soon to say his words have failed because a prophet shall prophesy that which he shall live to see accomplished.
The real problem is that these ardent critics do not in the least believe in TB Joshua as a prophet which has been the problem from the very beginning.
If we believe that indeed he is a true prophet of the most high and he seems to say something that does not seem to sit right with our reason. We ought always to believe, not that he has spoken amiss, but that we have not conceived it aright. For ignorance does not judge knowledge, neither is knowledge competent enough to judge foreknowledge. It is plain foolishness to act contrary to this truth. How can one who does not know rightly judge one who knows? And how can one who knew only when he saw it happen rightly judge one who foreknew?
Instead of misrepresenting his words, nitpicking on statements that don’t really matter in the scheme of things, when he speaks and we do not understand, let us ask: “prophet, explain to us what you mean when you say this or that”. He is alive and still amongst us in Ikotun egbe Lagos Nigeria. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. His website is www.scoan.org. He did not speak and run away.
